Thanks, barryd. Interesting.

Especially a brother 'Gust J Lewington' who doesn't appear in the birth indexes or in any census with the rest of his family.

Thanks, [Ray].

I assume that that is a transcription from Ancestry. Only they could ****** up a transcription to that extent. No wonder I couldn't find any mention of Gust J Lewington in any primary sources.

The original is a bit messy but it is George F J. And as for how they got Lewington, goodness only knows. 

FindMyPast's transcription got it right.

See attached.
